. good morning, every. the big weather story has been the drought and the heat throughout much of texas. we were very encouraged that we could get a tropical storm that would head over texas and you can see that big red blob. this is tropical storm don. it does not appear that don will bring us the relieve that we need. houston probably won't see anything, corpus krissy christy some showers. it has tracked further south than we would have liked. you can see that the bapath is more north/northwest. we wanted to end up in central texas. it looks like it will rain itself out over northern mexico and the mountains and that will quickly break the storm up. so even west texas may not get the relief we were hoping for. landfall should be sometime close to midnight and then it will quickly be moving out. so in brownsville, by saturday morning, this could be over with. and it should be anywhere between a 50 to 65-mile-an-hour tropical storm. so at bit of a pump, but it won't do any devastation. we were hoping for rain. you can see the scattered showers off the coast that will be arriving during

of different ways. by the way, this is no big secret, it's not like i'm telling you something other people can't figure out very easily. but if you have one phone call another phone it creates a busy line. if you use a third phone to call in, it goes directly to the voice mail and if you don't have a pin, it's very easy to get somebody's voice mail. >> we talked about at&t. how vulnerable are they to getting hacked and do we need to make pin numbers mandatory in order to keep all of our phones safe? >> i think that's something to think about. right now the onus is on the consumer, it's on us to be proactive with our mobile devices to put that pin on there. you think of your smartphone these days. it's really like a small laptop. in my face it's almost as big as a laptop. but you store so much personal information on there that really the companies should be doing more for users, i would say, because they're such an extension of ourselves. because there's such critical information on there. you know, i don't want to single out at&t too much because all of the wireless carriers are aware that th

. if you do nothing, you have a big jump in revenue. obama has been saying let's thai the bush tax cuts are going to lapse and we are going to extend the ones for the middle class. republicans are afraid to let him do that up front. it would kill momentum for a tax reform. >> but, but, but why just get rid of the bush tax cuts. if they are so awful, why not get rid of all of them. get rid of all of them for everybody. if tax cuts are the worst thing ever, the bush tax cuts, get rid of the bush tax cuts for everybody and raise billions in revenue. >> right. i think we could probably figure it out sitting around the table. i don't think it's that difficult. they are locked in in political terms. it's a much different issue to them. you can make rational compromises and deals here. the problem is, how do they do it. what's happening is they are at the point where they realize the consequences. at some point, they realize they have to do something other than hold the ground saying this is it. we're not going to change anything. we are at that point and we have little time to work with. >> h
now, august 2nd is the big date, and the hard deadline or the u.s. default defaults on the $14.3 trillion debt. the white house says that lawmakers need a basic plan in place by today if they are going to be able to craft a bill in time to avert a default. nbc's kristen welker is following all of this for us live at the white house. kristen, good afternoon. where do we go from here? what is the bottom line? a lot of talking from the white house and the republicans and where does it all stand and what is next? >> hi, there, jeff. house speaker john boehner and president obama are saying that they are not close to a deal, but there has certainly been a lot of chatter about a potential deal. here is what it would look like. it would involve $3 trillion in deficit reductions over the next decade. it would include immediate cus s to discretionary spending right off of the top, and then over time, you'd see some changes in entitlements things like social security and medicare and also some changes to the tax code including a roll back for tax breaks for the wealthy americans and the
to other states and has been trying in a very big way of spreading the gospel of making it harder to vote all across the country. not just in kansas, but everywhere. earlier this week chris coback wrote urging politicians in other states to do what he and sam brownback have done in kansas, the case republicans broadly make for the urgent need for these new make it harder to vote laws is that voter fraud is wide spread across the country and a real threat. as evidence, there were 221 incidents of voter fraud reported in kansas between 1997 and 2010. seven of which yielded convictions. that's the evidence. 13 years, 7 convictions. convictions? detailed in a report from mr. coback's office in kansas. they consist of the following. one instance of electioneering, so campaigning too close to a polling place and six incidents of double voting, people voting in kansas or another state or two different counties in kansas. again, the seven convictions that are evidence to make voting harder is one case of electioneering and six cases of double voting. here's the thing, whether or not those seven c
at the white house, there were eight. it came out in the open at one point that group was too big. even eight of the top congressional leaders, too unmanageable and too unwielding. harry reid and nancy pelosi, and mitch mcconnell from the senate and john boehner who has been the president's chief interlocker over the several weeks. the question is can they pick up the pieces after the deal crashed and burned, the so-called grand bargain last night? ak moneyy back and forth. the president accusing house speaker john boehner of not returning telephone calls. the target is always moving, and moving the goalpost particular eye the issue of taxes, alex. john boehner said we had an deal on $800 billion in revenues. similar to analogous to taxes in washington speak. over the course of ten years, i've got more on my blackberry at this moment. the president came back to the republicans earlier in the week after getting an earful from democrats after seeing a rival plan emerge in the senate that had higher tax revenues. they blame that for kind of messing this whole thing up, fouling up the whole deal,
is it shows that the united states system is not set up to do big things. when a crisis like this comes up they cannot do a deal that would show stability to the world. >> ronald reagan and tip o'neal made big deals. in the 1990s, bill clinton and the republican congress made big deals. and mika, it's not over yet, but it has gotten to the point already that this is damaging the reputation of the united states the longer it goes, and i think we're talking about it damaging our reputation more every day that the crisis goes on. >> i think both sides would agree with that. after a weekend of meetings resulting in yet another impasse, president obama is canceling two fundraisers today to continue negotiations. senate majority leader harry reid said the talks broke down last night because of the republicans insistence on a short-term deal, and their plan would cut $2.7 trillion over the next ten years. officials say it raises the debt ceiling but no tax increases. and he salaid out his latest solution. >> there will be a two-stage possible. it's not physically possible to do this in one step.
house back to the table, back to talking about something big. now, look, we still got a long ways to go. it's a weekend of sales jobs going on right now that actually began last night when the president had the congressional democratic leadership over to start talking turkey. so that brings us to the other sticking point, the actual substance. everybody has to figure out what to cut. this isn't going to be as easy as folks think and both sides are moving toward a deal that would include a trigger to assure mutually destructive politically when it comes to the two big items being kicked to committees or joint committees and that's still being figured out, tax and entitlements. one incentive plan would kill bush tax cuts for the rich and key portions of the new health care law if somehow the reforms for the tax code and social security and medicare weren't agreed to and implemented by january 1st, 2013. the question is, is the penalty on the bush tax cuts sort of the idea that you're kicking this down, is that going to be enough to assuage some democrats who believe there's too many cuts
the battle on a short term debt ceiling because we can't put together a big one in one week's time. and you noticed the president had no statement in there, "i will veto a short-term debt ceiling." what happened to that? >> he didn't have that. i was wondering if you would allow if you ear in the president's position or advisor, you advised many presidents before. would you not tell him to stand up to his opponents? >> i would not tell the president of the united states to veto a short term debt ceiling. if, as a result, i'm going to throw my country into default over what? the president is willing to accept a clean debt ceiling with nothing. now boehner is going to give a debt ceiling with $1 trillion in cuts. why would he reject the good because it's not the best? >> my advice -- i think, pat, we've had this discussion on the show. pat and i sparred a bit in the last two weeks. i think pat, unfortunately, for the democrats standpoint is right. i don't mean you're right. you're more right this morning than wrong. if the president has to accept a short term plan which is looking more and mo
they are in crisis mode. a big vote coming this afternoon in the house. members will consider speaker john boehner's debt bill. but even if he can rein in tea party members to get it passed, 51 democratic senators vowed to block it. >> if this debate continues to be driven by the extremes, well, whether we go off the cliff august 2nd or go off the cliff at the end of the year, we'll be at the same place. >> i've got a little rebellion on my hands every day. it comes with the territory. >> you're not worried. >> never let them see you sweat. >> i think we'll end up in a stalemate. i anticipate that the boehner bill will get through the house today after he's pushed his folks kind of hard, and then it will be dead on arrival once it gets to the senate. >> of course, time is running out. default just five days away and things are getting so bad the u.s. treasury is now weighing which bills to pay if the country defaults. michael the correspondent for "washington post," and louise story, according to politico republican leaders are very prepared to say to the president take it or leave it. and if he l

this will not be effecting anyone in the southeast u.s. let's get back to the heat wave because this is the big story of the week. historic heat wave. last week we had a heat wave for a couple weeks but this one will last all week. we have excessive heat warning in st. louis from now until friday. that's unheard of to go that long. huge ridge of high pressure will expand and head to the eastern seaboard where it's going to get uncomfortable as we head to the end of the week into the upcoming weekend. the dangerous heat right now, if you're elderly, the children, you know, day after day, anyone without air conditioning, is going to be in the orangish color. we're used to the heat in the dallas area. it's been 10 0 degrees now 16 days in a row. but you only have heat at vizryes to your north. it's where the humidity is very high. heat indexes will be in the dangerous level from minneapolis, all of iowa, kansas city, omaha, st. louis. how hot will it be? kansas city around 9, same for you in st. louis. when you add in oppressive humidity, it's not your typical humidity. ipts much more humid than it shou
could mean big losses on wall street and beyond. for more on today's trading session, a lot of people watching how all this affects markets, geoff cutmore is live for us in london. >> reporter: good morning. you know the markets would like to see some resolution on this, as well. the meant that the boehner deal seemed to be falling apart, we saw the u.s. futures go negative and that's where they remain at this point. the european market open also has been very lackluster. we're in negative territory and it ain't about the earnings. it's all about getting a settlement to the debt ceiling story. >> and a lot of this country's ceos of the biggest banks are starting to chime in. what are they saying? >> reporter: well, it's been a very tough period for the banks as you know. a lot of people still feel they have a big hand in the responsibility for the credit crisis. but so many years away from that, they are looking to gain from a pickup in the u.s. growth story. but if the debt ceiling issue doesn't get resolved, fears that it would hold back invest himself that will mean third quarter a
. but there are two big things. most damaging of all, he was pressed several times on whether he had had any conversations with all of his various contacts and friends at rupert murdoch's company in the u.k. about a $12 billion attempt to buy out the reminder of bskyb, the big broadcaster over there. this was a deal that the british government has quasi-judicial authority to approve or deny. all he could say is he had no inappropriate conversations. he kept using that phrase. frankly, it didn't sound like the members of parliament really bought that line. the second thing, a really explosive claim, that someone in the senior government, a senior government official had been hacked and bugged while andy coulson was there. these kinds of allegations are -- they just keep cropping up every day and it doesn't look like this kind of statement or investigations are going to end any time soon. >> yeah, we could be early in the game at the moment. michael, i want to play some sound from yesterday's testimony, what we heard there in parliament. take a listen to this first. >> i don't know. i am now a
the will of the house the go forward? >> indeed. that is one of the big m.o.s when he came into the house, and said so much hot air in the place, and let the people's voice be heard and it is the people's house, and they would be ultimately be heard, and he realizes the stakes on the debate of the debt, and if this is not out of the house of representatives, they have nowhere to go as a house of conference and it reflects poorly on his leadership to show that he cannot stop the influence of some of the most far right members of party who tried to undercut him and undercut members of defense by soliciting outside interest groups to get them to vote against the bay no bioehner bil. it is the march of the 216. >> and luke, loud mouth, thank you for the moment. can i come to the silver fox, mike viqueira. >> he is the silver fox. >> and you were at the press conference with jay carney and how was tlit? >> well, a 20th figure once said, we are seeing politics is the most gruesome effect. and this is sausage making up here. this thing is not going to be resolved today or tomorrow or this weekend and the two
with political philosophy in the house. as the debt line approaches and house republicans are going to have a big choice -- they picked this fight with the president for a reason, the debt limit is not going to be raised unless we do something on the deficit projections now and in to the future. but the problem with the house republicans is, they never answered affirmatively in a politically sa political politically saliable way what the a the answer should be. you have to have a plan that can pass both chambers and the president can sign. otherwise, you're talking past the other party. >> the question is, nicole, what is republican position right now? at the end of last week, we had republican leaders on in the house, guys i like very much personally. been a champion of paul ryan. back from the time i met him, in 1994. but we ask, what do you want? and their position was, it's not enough to close the tax loopholes. we've got to cut tax rates, income tax rates for individuals and corporations. that's not going to happen in 2011. they know it's not going to happen. i say, okay, let's say you got t

believes that the boehner problem is anything more than a big, wet kiss to the right wing. i mean the tea party. that's what i mean. it's too bad the caucus is run by so little people. >> when i asked the plan, the aids pointed to a speech. congress can't vote on a speech. a veto threat won't prevent default. >> we are urging the republicans to step back, put their party caucuses aside, put their pledges to grover norquist aside and put this country first. >> it's unfair from the president of the united states to lead from behind. it's unfair for the president of the united states not to come forward with a specific plan that, perhaps to be considered by both bodies, but only to go out and give lectures. >> we are not going to hold this country hostage to the tea party. those folks over there, about 80 of them, they pledged to grover norquist. i want to pledge allegiance to the united states of america. that's what we should be doing. >> good morning. it is thursday, july 28th. look at the beautiful shot of new york city. welcome to "morning joe." yes, with us on set -- >> look at him. >>
big enough for 40 or so spectators, but there will be overflow rooms with television sets. this is really must-see tv today in great britain and for many other places. certainly the united states, which is why there's so much media here today as well. as one british politician put it, it's the three musketeers of the murdoch media empire and the phone-hacking scandal that will appear here later today. they'll be grilled by ten members of a select committee. it doesn't sound like much, it's the committee for culture and media. these hearings will only last an hour for rupert and his 38-year-old son, james murdoch. and another hour following that for rebekah brooks, who was as we know now, the chief executive of murdoch's british newspapers before she suddenly resigned last week. members of parliament in terms of what we're going to hear today, they'll try to get the murdochs and brooks to commit themselves on the record. saying things that they might be able to use against them later. especially if what they say turns out to be misleading. they're not going to be on oath, b
't want this man to get the chance to spread the message that he wants to spread today. it's a big decision. there's a lot of people here. you can imagine the frantic mood outside of the courthouse and inside this hallway. >> one of the details that jumped out over the last couple days to a lot of people was this number of 21 years. some people believethars for th death of at least 93 people if he is found dlt of that. but it's more nuanced than that. can you explain that, jay? >> it is. and 21 years is the sentence at this point. there's a new law, but there's an act that would make it longer, 30 years. what prosecutors hope to do in this case, is after that time is served, should he become guilty, if he poses a threat to society. if there's a danger in releasing him. they can convene in a panel. they can keep him detained three years. and reconvene every three years after. they can impose a life sentence here. but it will be done every three years or so to keep him behind bars. >> that's the good news. there would be a way. jay, how right now on this monday, is the city of oslo a
back to work. tonight, my commentary on how washington and big business need to start hiring. good to have you with us tonight, folks. it's an unbelievable day of news coming out of washington, d.c. house speaker john boehner, i guess you could say is finding out the hard way that a stiff drink and round of golf just isn't going to solve this problem. the speaker is politically hog-tied in his own caucus. he doesn't have the votes. the american people are now witnessing the hourglass being turned on the american economy. going to be a lot of losers if they don't get it together. disaster looms and the tea partiers just don't seem to give a damn. a vote on boehner's bill was scheduled for 6:15 tonight. it never happened. boehner is still trying to strong arm the tea party membership of his caucus into doing some kind of a deal to move it over to the senate. congressman louie gomer left boehner's office and said he was "a bloodied and beaten no." so what are we witnessing here right now, folks? this is a major victory for the tea partiers. them holding out and not falling prey to the
is the last day of the big heat here. tomorrow is a cooler day and much better next week. >> for those of us who had to walk through the city yesterday this concrete jungle when you walked past those stores with the air-conditioning blowing out, a second of relief as you walk through it. can i ask you about the humidity danger. we had 104 yesterday as you're saying that's two degrees shy of an all time high. but you know, you add in the humidity, eric, 113, 114 it feels like. how does this make things dangerous? >> it stresses your body. when you sweat you can feel when it's humid it sits on you. when that evaporates in dry air that's how your body cools off. when it's humid outside, you don't get that relief. your body is working harder that's when people succumb to heatstroke and heat related issues. that's what makes this weather so dashlgs. >> eric fisher many thanks. >>> well developing now in europe. a nation in shock this morning after a killing spree claims the lives of at least 91 people apparently carried out by one man. police in norway say they've arrested a man connected to both
, rational approach to it. markets, actually, if they know there's a big deal behind it will be quite -- wouldn't they, john heilemann? >> i think so. the time is tough right now. listen to harry reid and mitch mcconnell who know how the senate works and how long it takes to do the following things, to reform medicare and tax reform. they are things that typically can take many months to get done. >> isn't it a surprise? it wasn't a surprise the show started at 6:00 a.m. on the east coast. it's no surprise we have a deadline. >> to build the legislation is not something that can happen in the span of four or five days. you can't. the key issue is what obama will be wanting to see is the outlines of a deal where he has a good assurance the outlines of the deal can get past once the meat is put on the bones. if that's the case and the markets see that, everything will be fine. whether it's a few days extension or a couple weeks, it's going to take a lot to get to that point. there's no consensus on the house side among house republicans in favor of what the gang of six is doing. as we s
of potential violence. >> how strong is the right wing here, and how big is this pool of people that could produce such a person? >> that pool of people, i would say, is very, very limited. what we see here is a rather extreme single instance rather than something representative. >> reporter: the maximum punishment in norway for any crime is 21 years in prison. if convicted, the 32-year-old suspect would be back on the streets when he's 53 years old. just hours before he began his murder spree the suspect posted a manifesto on the internet. he said he wanted to stop muslim immigration into europe and he hoped the attack would focus attention on his political views. now he's been charged with terrorism and will be arraigned tomorrow. alex? >> thank you very much, martin fletcher from oslo. well, americans are expressing their support for norway. on saturday mourners created a makeshift memorial in washington, d.c., where people left flowers, flags, candles, and cards by a statue in front of the norwegian embassy. president obama has also offered his condolences to the people of norway. and
here about a potential big deal, something that would reduce the deficit by $3 to $4 trillion over the next decade and under that plan you would see some cuts to discretionary spending right up front. then changes to entitlements, things like medicare and social security kick in a little later and also some changes to the tax code that would kick in later, things like rolling back tax breaks for wealthy americans and large corporations. now we're also hearing about the possibility of getting rid of that deduction for home mortgage interest. here's what's interesting, thomas. to your point earlier in the week, republicans were really upset over the possibility of changing the tax code, potentially increasing taxes. well, yesterday it was democrats who were concerned about the possibility that the president was maybe giving in on entitlement reform and not insisting on enough changes to the tax code. white house officials insist that is not the case. they say the president is dedicated to making sure that there is new revenue from changes to the tax code. so that's where we stand rig
was apparently trying to do, get a big deal in a balanced way. so, that's the good news. again, the details still have to come out and senator durbin, a member of the gang of six said yesterday, they don't have legislative language. the question is, you know, what can be done between now and august 2nd, if anything with the plan or do we need to continue to proceed with a back-up plan, plan b. >> chris, i was going to ask earlier, last hour to steve rattner who was here and suggested if the plan were to go forward, there would have to be a month or two month extension to allow the committee chairman and chairwoman in the house and senate to do their business. this would be the most dramatic reform of entitlement since the reagan era. there would have to be an extension of time for the debt ceiling, would there not? >> i think it's right. we would have to work out some interim arrangement to proceed down that road. again, exactly what the time line would be and that question would remain to be seen. the good news is this provides some additional momentum to the idea of getting something big done.

-terrorist organizations that are based in mexico, but that exist to supply drugs into the united states. but the big bust occurs here in the united states. as you say, think about this, friends, $60 million in cash. but let's talk about some of the drugs that authorities were able to take off the streets. meth, 2,773 pounds of it. almost the same amount of cocaine. marijuana, 14,800 pounds. and what this does is strikes a very massive blow to the operation of distribution of drugs from mexico into the united states. chris, you and i were talking with this last summer. when they got one of these thugs, his name was the barbie, they asked him, hey, how do you get all the cash back to mexico? he said well, they bring it in on tractor-trailers, you know, 18-wheelers full of cash. think about this. this is a cash-only business. they got $62 million worth of it that would go right into the coffers of these drug cartels. and it's a massive blow to these organizations, especially the distribution level of it. >> look, not to rain on the parade, because obviously this is huge and what they have done is pretty inc
